The nodule was hypermetabolic on positron-emission tomography, with a standard uptake value of 5.9. There were no additional sites of hypermetabolic foci.g., the BRAF V600E mutation). Standard cisplatin, vinblastine, and temozolomide chemotherapy was initiated, and following two cycles, a CT scan showed stability of her pulmonary nodule no proof additional metastases.
